Every month we enjoy visiting this outstanding Gallery. It is filled with beautiful art works from Australia and practically everywhere else in the world. I especially love the Impressionists from Australia and France. Then the Oriental gallery is also fascinating. So is much more. My favourite painting of all is of a farmer and his cows on a frosty morning painted by Elioth Gruner. Enjoy a light meal at the cafe or indulge yourself in the fine dining restaurant that overlooks the Domain and Finger Wharf. Now I've given away all my secrets of this lovely Gallery. Oh! I forgot to mention my favourite bronze sculpture of a man and a horse by Mario Marini.

Brilliant gallery. We visited the lost treasures of Afghanistan and it was amazing. The works from the early European era were wonderful as were the exhibitions of early Australian works.

Never realised how wonderful this place is. Spent a couple of happy hours entranced with the photography and some of the wonderful iconic Australian works that I just didn't expect to see. Moving.

This is a wonderful museum that is a "must see" for any visitor to Sidney. The collection is diverse and varied in terms of European and Australian artists and classic and contemporary. The building is worth a visit on its own. Very friendly staff.

You can spend hours walking around oogling and getting lost in the wonderful art works. When you get bored you can walk around the windows and look at the amazing views of Sydney Harbour and the city. The restaurant is good yet pricy, the gift shop is extensive.
